Craig lives on the property and runs his business from there and Florida. I help out while he's away
Could not have asked for a better location! Easy walk to the square. Would recommend to anyone! Great experience!!
This was my first Airbnb experience, and I made the trip to Santa Fe with a good friend of mine. We were looking for a place to stay close to downtown, away from hotel and food chains, and with amenities to help us relax between outings.
This place was beyond ideal. Parking off the street, heaters in almost every room, modern appliances and conveniences, and thoughtful extras including body wash in the glass-enclosed shower, bottled water and coffee with basic settings, a set of extra sheets for the bed, and detergent for the in-space washer and dryer. It was wonderful to "come home" to the space between our jaunts to local eateries, museums, and shops, and because of the location, we didn't need to travel more than 5-10 minutes to get to this location for napping and refreshing breaks.
We did have one minor challenge with the door knob on the bathroom door; it closed and wouldn't open. However, Craig was excellent at responding immediately with the tools we needed to get the door open, so our trip went on interrupted. It was just a minor tightening of some screws to get the handle working again.
I enjoy modern interiors immensely, but worried that the setting might take away from the authentic experience of Santa Fe, but it didn't; there were lots of opportunities to be in more traditional surroundings in the city. I think that created a perfect balance.
I highly recommend the Carriage House casita if you want a bright, airy, modern escape during your visit, and you need a place that is incredibly convenient to all the attractions, and away from the "cookie cutter" hotel and restaurant chains.
We went to Santa Fe for a "touch" of Christmas hoping for a contrast to our central California weather...what we got was perfect. There was just enough snow to have a "sense" of it. The Christmas festivities in the plaza, Canyon Road, and the restaurants...we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Craig's apartment location let us walk EVERYWHERE and was exactly as presented...but the plus, the floor in the downstairs bedroom is heated...happy feet!
A great 2 br / 2 ba! Close to everything, clean, and well furnished with a modern style and new appliances. Although the rooms were a bit small, all other aspects of the stay made up for size. Loved Santa Fe, and all the shops and Canyon road galleries. Highly recommend this condo, and Craig was a great host!
The space is absolutely lovely, SO clean, and we had a wonderful time during our stay. It is very well located, parking is easy, you can walk to everything, and Craig was very helpful. Very Highly recommended!!
The house is very conveniently located, less than a 5 mins walk to the plaza. And an easy cycle ride or walk to Canyon rd.
Super clean, quiet and very comfortable. You won't be disappointed!
*For those interested, we didnt have a car so we rented bikes from Mello Velo for the weekend. We cycled to St Johns college, from where we hiked the Atalya trail. Great day out.
*Great margaritas at the Secreto Lounge (St Francis Hotel) - order the smoked sage margarita and sit outside on the terrace.
*Good food and a variety of margaritas at Maria's.
Craig was a great host and his property was an incredible place to stay in Santa Fe. It was well designed and decorated, clean, and only a short walk to the square. We would stay there again in summer or winter and encourage all to book this property next time you are headed to Santa Fe.
Displaced by short term constuction in our own home, we searched for somewhere to stay for a few days and wanted a clean non-cluttered space. We found this one bedroom modern, updated and ultra clean place on this side of town that has been rebuilt from an old carriage house! Craig has an option for a larger unit available as well.
I'm a Santa Native and have had my share of howling coyotes and excessive turquoise and peach colored latex paint smeared all over and Joseph and I enjoy a nice clean space free of personal clutter. Walking at a snail-like pace will get you onto Santa Fe's Plaza in ten minutes. We will stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay at Craig's place in Santa Fe. The location is perfect at a few blocks from the plaza and in a pulled back courtyard next to a quiet street. The interior finishes of this house are top notch and as high end as a 5* hotel. You can tell that this has been done with a lot of passion. Craig was out of town, but was very responsive to my questions and concerns.
We would definitely stay at Craig's again.
Great cozy, modern, beautiful carriage house! Perfect location, too! This is the perfect getaway for a couple, and we'd love to come back and visit again.
